People Are Strange

After having lived with their hits for all my life really,
I began to dig the Doors in a more specific way a few months ago.
Have been listening to Strange Days and Soft Parade after bringing those CD's bk from Tokyo in Sept..
Found a rather silly discussion on ILM, mostly a shuttered view of people who didn't live through the period when the group was really pretty essential.
As usual, if someone can do 'better', then get on up and try !
On wkend rd Jerry Hopkins and Danny Sugerman's "No One Gets Out Of Here Alive",
and that helped me burn through the borrowed CD of LA Woman quickly.
A couple great ones obv ( title cut and Riders ) but too many easy blues retreads.
Good to get the bk story and now have gotten that out of the system.

More solid, good reviews of the Ike Yard rere came in from Todd @ Car Park's HQ.
Swept through the programming of the new pieces Traffikers, Elysians, 'Ike Yard 3.
Got inspired to assemble first word images into lyrics for something I decided to do - a new version of Oshima Cassette which was a nice cut that the group never recorded very well bk in the day.
This was a chugging forward piece approaching song form, lyrics about this far away land I knew a little about, Tokyo Japan
Now it's updated to become Odaiba Cassette, words based on things, places, people from last trip to Tokyo Bay's artificial islands , giant buildings and beach.

'That's a picture I really like
on an advert ripped free from it's wall by September's wind storm
Jusglitty winter bleache white blonde, a little overtanned
walking past her own WANTED poster
turns to smile
long coat open around her naked hip'

Another session on Thurs, finetuning the new stuff ...
